Mega Metallic Eurorack Percussion (& beyond!!) // Entity Metalloid from Steady State Fate

video upload by DivKid

"Here we have the newest Eurorack module in the Entity range from Steady State Fate … METALLOID PERCUSSION. This is a simple set of controls for what is under the hood and much more complex circuit for synthesising metallic and noise based percussion. There’s 3 analogue oscillators which get ring modulated alongside having an FM bus for the most metally (move over Metallica) of metal noise sounds! This metallic noise synthesis is then split into two voices with multimode filters, VCAs and envelopes to control and create a huge range of percussion sounds. The trigger inputs are also dynamic, offering a velocity style (loud to quiet) dynamic and musical response to varying input material.

In the video I get snares, claps, rides, crashes, hi hats, gongs, video game coin collection sounds, Star Wars pod racers and plenty more! It’s not a clone of anything, nor is it meant to make one sound. But it’s easily bendable and shapeable to take the place of many classic percussion sounds. Check out the sounds in the timing index below and skip around as you like."

4 New Featured Packed Eurorack Modules from SSF // Steady State Fate at Knobcon 2023

video upload by DivKid

"As always Andrew never ceases to amaze by the range of creativity in his circuit designs and musical approach to making more complex feature packed modules compelling and easy to use. In this video back from Knobcon, Andrew takes us through 4 new Eurorack modules. Including the Metalloid Percussion synthesiser, Prime Modulator, Ultra Random Analog Redux and the Impulse Dynamics."

Tainted Lulz - a quick eurorack modular wiggle for fun

video upload by John L Rice

"I hadn’t played with this system for a while. It’s made up of eight 2hp modules, six Happy Nerding modules, two Erica Synths modules, and one each from 4ms, Division6, WMD/SSF, Bubblesound, Tiptop Audio, Intellijel, Circuit Abbey, and Synth-Werks. #modularsynth #eurorackmodular #electronicmusic"

SSF Steady State Gate vs Erica Synths Black LPG: Listening to resonance

video upload by John Schussler

"A recent thread on ModWiggler brought up the question of resonance on low pass gate modules, and it occurred to me I hadn't really compared the Steady State Gate
from SSF (which has resonance) to the Erica Synths Black LPG (which also has resonance). Resonance isn't wildly common in LPGs, so it seemed worthwhile to listen to both and see what differences I heard.

Yes, there are more LPGs out there that include resonance. I don't have them, I just have these. Yes, they're very different modules with different feature sets, but I figure the resonant part can be examined somewhat separately from the rest.

Maybe not. We'll see.

VCO is a Befaco Pony. Sequencer is a Clank Chaos.

Test after moving the Noise Engineering BIM VCO into this folding modular case. I like it!

video upload by John L Rice

"The gate out of the SSL The Matrix sequencer is patched to the SSL/YuSynth clock divider with one output going to the Basimilus Iteritas Magnus and the other two outputs triggering State FX Dual Trigger Processor (5U Mutable Instruments Peaks) envelopes that are modulating the audio out of The Matrix via a Happy Nerding Fun VCF and Grove Audio quad VCA. (the audio out of the Matrix also goes to the quad VCA and its level is just manually controlled) All four outputs of the Martin Jan Koehler Tidal Modulator (5U Mutable Instruments Tides) go to a Moon Modular 525 quandary attenuator and then to various inputs of the Noise Engineering BIM to vary the sound. #modularsynth #sequencer #electronicmusic"

Seven Years Gone

video upload by John L Rice

"Thinking of my dad who passed away on this day seven years ago, August 29th 2016.

This is my small custom eurorack synth build with 4ms Pod cases attached to a PedalTrain pedal board. It has modules from Kilpatrick Audio, Noise Engineering, Rebel Technology, Mutable Instruments, Modcan, Steady State Fate, Squarp Instruments, Doepfer, Erica Synths, 4ms, and the Haken ContinuuMini on top.

Massive Eurorack Drums & Beyond // Steady State Fate Entity Ultra Perc

video upload by DivKid

Also see SSF Entity Ultra Perc Preview

"Here we have the vastly powerful and highly flexibly ENTITY ULTRA PERC from SSF (Steady State Fate). This module continues and develops on the Entity Percussion Synthesiser and is part of the drum line up for SSF right alongside the ENTITY ULTRA KICK.

The ULTRA PERC features lots of modular building blocks inside its circuits including two resonant filter cores, a wave folder, filtered noise generator, trigger delays, envelopes, VCAs and more. It’s a whole mini modular system in a module that while focussed on percussion sounds can be used as a processor for external signals. You’ll see anything from west coast style synth voices through the broken tape machine style FX processing in the video … among the more obvious wide range of drum sounds.

It’s 100% analog (despite some digital FM like tones at times) and to be blunt it is utterly impressive, vast in its potential yet still easy to dial in great sounds.

Eurorack low pass gates - session 5 (ish)

video upload by John Schussler

Note this is the first post to feature BeepBoop.

"I can't stop collecting low pass gates. There's GAS, and then there's LPG GAS. Don't know what the deal is there.

Here's the latest batch. Most of them are small and passive, but some are bigger and powered and covered in knobs and sliders and stuff. So it's really a sound comparison, not a full module comparison.

Sound source: Befaco Pony square wave. Sequencer: Stochastic IG.
No envelopes, just gates out of the SIG.

Low Pass Gates Reimagined! // Steady State Gate from Steady State Fate

video upload by DivKid

"Here we have the new Steady State Gate Eurorack module from Steady State Fate (SSF). It's a deconstructed and expanded take on the classic 'low pass gate'. It breaks out the VCA and VCF elements of a low pass gate, expands the filtering, cleverly models the vactrol envelope response and 'ring' of classic LPGs and applies adjusted versions of those to the VCA and VCF. PLUS you get a whole Timbre section on the input of the module which offers musical wavefolding, saturation and a unique QAOS mode.

I've managed to filter sine waves with this (yes, really, with the QAOS mode), use the SSG as a standalone kick module, create classic Buchla plucks and bongo sounds, add tape like frequency and saturation shaping to feedback loops and lots more."

via Steady State Fate

"The Steady State Gate is a novel and discrete multi-mode Low Pass Gate including an additional stage of timbre modifying circuitries.


6db/Oct Bandpass, 6dB/Oct Lowpass and 12dB/Oct Lowpass Filter Modes
Manual Frequency Cutoff Control and CV Input
Manual Resonance (Q-FACTOR) Control and CV Input
Three Timbre Modifying Circuits - Manual Control and CV Input.
Wave Folder
Soft Saturation Overdrive
QAOS (Resonance Character Modifier)
Manual and Voltage Controlled Decay Envelope tailored to Vactrol LPG response curve.
Envelope output for self patching and controlling external modules
EXCITE Input conditions gates and triggers and external envelopes to 'pluck' the Low Pass gate
EXCITE is input level sensitive to control the dynamics and emphasis of plucking effects.
Sensitive to Envelope attack up to about 50mS
The Steady State Gate can also be used as a standalone VCF or as a stand alone VCA with high end roll off - typical of most traditional Low pass gates. With or without Timbre modifiers in play."

Complex Waves of the SSF Zephyr

video upload by Patchwerks

"In this video resident expert Steven Ly demonstrates the SSF Zephyr complex oscillator.

Get yourself the SSF Zephyr here:

Zephyr is a bit of a mashup of the excellent trackability and octave switching found in the Spectrum VCO and the complex waveform generation of the Zero Point Oscillator along with some additional unique features to create a powerful analog VCO.
